Not for money or prizes, but for the experience, would you live an Amish lifestyle for a full week?
Can't live without technology. That's just who I am.
I think it would be awesome to try out for a month or so. I can't say I would want to do it for much longer though.
I would love to. Where do I sign!
I could but don't care too.
Afraid of actual work? Fits you're persona.
Haha I would rather work with a computer. Already worked on a farm... But being a "cowboy" form Illinois you must know a lot about work....
I would do it for a month.
I've been on a farm with no electricity for four days due to a series of major earthquakes. F*** that. It's an experience I can do without ever again. Have fun getting water to 400 animals when your well isn't working.
If I could keep from accidentally swearing I'd fit right in for a short time.
I know I could do this for a week! I KNOW IT! I think I'd be disruptive, though. Not intentionally. I think the Amish folk, particularly the 'Elders', might consider my week to be 6 days too many. :-/
I think it would be cool! I could use that break from the fast-paced world; we all could, in fact. Plus, they have good food.
No SOH, sports to watch, Obama to yell at, no ipad for.... nope
It's just a week! You don't think you'd benefit from losing those things for a week... ?
I could, I have. I just don't want to
Fair enough. To each their own, right?
I live in Amish country and find their whole lifestyle to be rather silly and hypocritical. For example, the Amish freely use electricity and other modern conveniences in their businesses. They also ride in cars all the time - they just don't...
Do you live an Amish lifestyle or just live amongst it?
Nope, I'm not Amish. Contrary to popular belief, the Amish are only a small minority in the central PA area.
I've been to the Amish country, but not in a long time. I was near-ish over the summer when our car broke down on the way to New Orleans and we were stuck in greencastle for a day and a half, but it was really more mason-dixon country.
Cole- what is their religion? Are they Christian?
Early: Yes, they are Christians that reject modern technologies and live off the land.
Only a week? I would for life.
I'd like to do this, to start horse-drawn carriage/buggy races! Kind o' like the Amish version of NASCAR. I think the Amish kids would TOTALLY dig me! :D
Yessss. I love seeing Amish county. I think it is so amazing.
The hand crafted furniture is amazing!
"Witness" was a cool Amish flick. :)
Love that movie!
I think I could and would.
YES! I am TOTALLY curious about this Amish Mafioso! :D
I was watching the DIY network last night and saw Vanilla Ice doing a show in Amish country...
Only in America.
No Larry the Cable Guy does "Only on America"…..... haha
